The cable network has decided to cancel its gritty crime drama “The Killing”, after it had picked it up from the chopping block with a third season last year.
The surprise isn’t in the renewal, it’s in who’s leaving.
No one really expected anything less of a fourth season renewal for AMC’s zombie drama “The Walking Dead”, and that is what the cable network has done today.
But the fourth season will have to be run by someone other than current show runner Glen Mazzara.
The folks at TVLine are outdoing themselves in casting news at the moment. But that’s normal, since all shows are in full production mode for the first batch of episodes of the new season, which usually consists of 8 to 10 episodes in a row – so they need lots of actors to fill the roles.
ABC’s “Suburgatory” has scored quite the coup for its upcoming second season, per Michael Ausiello.
AMC has finally made a decision on its much-beleaguered drama “The Killing” – and the fans of the show, which faced serious backlash after refusing to solve the murder of Rosie Larsen at the end of season one, won’t like it.
Yeah, OK, that one will have to wait until Arnie drops that line on “Expendables 2″, but still, after a few days off, this blog is now back in action. And rest assured, it will be very active during the coming days, which will probably offer quite the amount of news, with the TCA Summer Press Tour looming.
But here’s what happened recently, especially casting-wise, and also during Comic-Con in San Diego. It’s quite the massive News Pack this time.
- The executive producers of The CW’s “Nikita” have announced at Comic-Con that Devon Sawa, who plays Owen Elliot on the drama, has been upped to a series regular.
On the verge of the freshly released trailer for the upcoming fifth and final season of AMC’s “Breaking Bad”, which will launch on Sunday, July 15 at 10/9c PM, news has just come in that the show will add a feminine touch by casting Scottish actress Laura Fraser in an “important” role, per EW’s Dan Snierson.
Up to this point, all we got to see from the upcoming fifth and final season of AMC’s highly acclaimed drama “Breaking Bad” was a very short teaser.
But no more.
And here, to cap the week of, the news pack with the latest happenings.
- Per TVLine’s Vlada Gelman, “Gilmore Girls” alum Chris Eigeman has joined the cast of Amy Sherman-Palladino’s new ABC Family series “Bunheads”, where he will play Conor, the director of a play that Michelle (Sutton Foster) and Fanny (Kelly Bishop) attend.
AMC has officially revealed the poster for the upcoming first half of the fifth season of “Breaking Bad”. The show returns on Sunday, July 15 at 10/9c PM. Eight episodes will air, with the other eight being held for summer 2013. And it sure looks like Walter has finally arrived. Check out the full poster after the jump!
And we’re off to another one of those short-read, telegraph-style news packs you are now accustomed to, it’s been over a week already, since the feature was introduced.
At least for me, ABC’s upcoming fall drama “Last Resort” just got a whole lot more interesting.
Per TVLine’s Michael Ausiello, Robert Patrick, who plays the USS Colorado’s master chief Joseph Prosser, and was only a guest star in the pilot, has now been upgraded to a series regular.
